study abroad ormskirk with grand valley summer term

9/10

edge hill is an approachable, friendly school in a rural setting. it's a great base to explore other regions of the uk and offers a serene atmosphere. the grand valley program offered classes from the stateside university housed within the ormskirk campus so our experience with academics a edge hill was limited. granted, a few of the buildings were heavily used by students, like the dance/bar/laundry space and the international dorms, but, hey, it's a college replete with students living on their own for the first time. especially conducive to studying were several nooks within buildings that offered quietude. this is a fine place to actually connect with other students as it generally is a slower-paced, relaxed campus environment. transportation to the town of ormskirk itself from campus proper is no problem, and it is a sweet, easy train ride away to liverpool. i felt very safe on campus and generally amidst open-minded individuals.

Higher than 10

10/10

If I could rate the summer program at Edge Hill for international students higher than a "10," I would. This year's program included trips to Liverpool, Manchester, the Lake District, and Stratford-upon-Avon, among other things, and every detail was carefully planned and carried out so that the students had the most positive experience possible. Beth Spears was a wonderful addition to the International Office staff, and because her time was dedicated to our travel groups, she was able to make sure everything came off without a hitch. I am very grateful for the work of the entire International staff. Our students loved their time at Edge Hill and their experience in the UK, and I am eager to return with another group in 2018. This experience is everything it should be for college students studying away from home: safe, fun, and welcoming, but also adventurous, wide-scoped, and flexible. A high-impact experience!

As a faculty member, the amount of assistance we get from the International Office at Edge Hill and the efficiency and friendliness of their work makes this one of the most attractive programs I have been exposed to.

How can this program be improved?

It is perfect as it is, flexible enough to meet the needs of very diverse groups.

Amazing once in a lifetime Study Abroad

10/10

Edge Hill University was a fantastic host while our American University visited! During our time there was a perfect balance between classroom time at Edge Hill and day excursions to various cities throughout England. The professors were so kind and welcoming each week we attended class. Edge Hill's campus is beautiful, I really enjoyed the campus overall. Our liaison from the international office Beth strived to give us the best study abroad experience possible! She handled all logistics and each day trip was maximize! She worked so hard Meeting all of needs while we were at Edge Hill.

My experience was unique because of the Edge Hill staff that hosted the summer program. Beth was amazing at planning everything for us to do and I'm so glad I got the chance to meet her! We got to enjoy tours of Ormskirk and Liverpool. We got to go into different schools and experience what it was like for students to learn in England. My favorite school that we visited was Rowan Park because the teachers were very passionate about helping the students learn real life situations. Also, we had the chance to meet the other groups during a taste testing and sports day. Although I personally thought sports day should have been during the first week students arrived on campus to help them get to know each other. Also, I was so sad that the cereal bars were not included in the meal plan. Even then, the international office was on top of it and provided us with a way to purchase those. Thank you all for an amazing start to the summer, I'm so glad I got the chance to experience 3 weeks in England at Edge Hill!

Parting the Leaves

9/10

I had a fantastic time studying at Edge Hill. The university was very welcoming and helpful, they truly wanted us to get involved with the school and feel like apart of the community. Ormskirk was such a cute little town and it truly began to feel like home before we left. Shake It Up is a great place to get a chocolate shake. Horseshoe was a good, cheap bar. Don't go to social, waste of time and 3 pounds. Never went to the gym but heard it was great - wish I would've went swimming though. Beth is cool, she deserves a promotion. GO TO LIVERPOOL A LOT!!! SO MUCH FUN. (Don't listen to them - ride a Lamabana!!)
